My name is Greg. I grew up in the South. I never say no to black coffee and chess pie. I know a little bit about a lot of stuff. Like how to tie a bowline, when to prune a rose bush and what makes a tasty rub. I like to pan-fry, sautee, bake, roast and grill whatever I can get my hands on. I married a woman who likes fast cars. Together, we have a couple of kids, a couple of dogs and a trailerful of outdoor gear that is mostly mine. I love my job because I get to meet people from all walks of life. I’ve photographed truck drivers, crabbers, mariachi and linemen. Robot makers, whiskey makers, fridge makers and nut pickers. Professional wrestlers, UN ambassadors, hall-of-famers and polka enthusiasts. Surgeons, CEOs, Air Force One pilots and brewers. Every person I frame up with my camera gives me a little more insight and a broader understanding of what it means to be a person living a life on this planet. Whether I'm telling the stories of real people or working with casting agents to gather the group you like, you can bet I’ll connect with whomever we have on the other side of my camera. Gimme a call and let’s go make some pictures!
For over 30 years Joe has teamed with clients and directed productions large and small, to create dynamic images for American corporations in his studio, and on location around the globe. Laying in a mudpit beneath 11-ton excavators, suspended inches above the highway at 70mph, hanging from helicopters or pausing NY traffic on the Manhattan Bridge, to capture a line of client trucks from a nearby skyscraper. Joe's passion for solving problems and creating great images is what gets him up every day, literally.
I was an artsy kid, and from a young age I knew I wanted to pursue a career as an artist. For a while I thought I was going to be a painter but as it turns out I'm flat out terrible at painting. Fortunately for me I was given a camera as a teenager and fell in love with taking pictures.
I studied photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Afterwards I moved to Atlanta where I live with my amazing wife and my chatterbox of a step son.
A few of the great clients I’ve had the pleasure of working with in that time include Bristol Myers Squibb, Allergan, Georgia Pacific, Tom Ford, Arby's, Verizon, BULGARI, and Wilson Staff.
In addition to assignment work I enjoy pursuing personal projects and creating what I’ve been told is “Fine Art”. My fancy art-photography is represented by Kai Lin Art here in Atlanta.
When I’m not doing any of the above you can usually find me traveling disinfecting my groceries, playing banjo, or accumulating cats (most of whom don't really seem to care for the banjo music).
In nearly fifteen years of photographic practice, I’ve shot pretty much everything: portraits for magazines, big corporations, and good ol’ straight up advertising; interiors for editorial and commercial clients; and tabletop for many magazines and one giant tech company.
I’ve always had a hard time defining what kind of work I do because of that diversity, but most of the time it goes like this:
An agency hires me for a portrait project. It goes pretty well and they like working with me, so they hire me for a corporate or advetising job, which together we crush. We are thick as thieves at this point, so when their client asks them: ‘hey, we want to shoot this whatchamacallit, what do you think?’ they think of me because I’m: 1. easy to work with, 2. good with lighting and technical stuff, 3. happy solving problems on the fly, and 4. always delivering to spec and on time.
I will get into the infiniti pool without being asked, if that’s where the picture is.
I’m Mike. I’ve been working in the world of photography for as long as I can remember. My work has always centered around people. People in factories. People behind fancy desks. People in fields of soybeans. People in race cars. People. That’s what I enjoy.
This wonderful career/life has taken me from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to the shores of Tulum, Mexico. From the vineyards of Napa to the board rooms of Fortune 500 companies. From the pristine golf courses of Georgia to the factories of South Carolina. I’ve been fortunate to see so many wonderful places and to meet so many awesome people. It’s been fulfilling.
Through it all I do my best to remember that I come from a family of givers. My father was career Coast Guard and my mother, the director of a soup kitchen she started in 1990. I am one of four children in a home like so many others. We laughed a lot. Told stories a lot. And learned to work hard.
Living now with my lovely wife, Lauren, on Lake Murray, SC we find ourselves very busy balancing our careers and raising our own family. We have two amazing daughters, Lucy and Ella. We do our best to continue the lessons of laughter and story telling and, of course, hard work.
As my career enters its 28th year I find myself looking back and smiling. I’ve met some wonderful people and I’ve enjoyed every minute. Cheers to that and to the next 28 years.
I first started out as a photojournalist so storytelling is in my DNA. With over 12 years experience working in editorial photography I took that knowledge to commercial photography. The goal of any good photo is to draw in a viewer and make a connection.
Today, we are overwhelmed with visuals coming at us from phones, computers, televisions, billboards, you name it. So in order to make a statement, images need to resonate with your audience. I pride myself in telling brand narrative stories that bring the viewer in to create an interconnection and showcase an experience. This is my passion.
While based in Nashville, TN I've lived all over the United States and experienced the diversity of America. I love meeting new people and making new friends. I grew up in Louisville, KY and it will always be my home. Because of that I'm partial to bourbon, horses, and baseball bats. When not working I enjoy exploring Nashville with my wife, playing the guitar, buying records, or planning my next big trip. So let's make a connection. Tell me your story!
I didn’t plan to be a photographer when I was a kid – I thought I’d be a veterinarian, an ad man on Madison Ave (hello, Don Draper!), or an astronaut. You know, the usual. But, I picked up a camera while in the army, and the rest, as they say, is history.
My photography resume is long and diverse – at different times, I have been a conflict, newspaper, sports, lifestyle, fashion, portrait, feature and food photographer. I have lived and worked in NYC, LA, Miami, DC, Phoenix, Harrisburg, PA, and for the last 11 years, Charlotte. All of these locations and experiences through my career have shaped my perspective.
I capture real moments, tell rich stories, and make people and products look great for brands, magazines and ad agencies. My work is real, relatable, honest and authentic. Whether everyday people or hired talent, I have a natural ability to make people comfortable in front of my lens. We have fun on my shoots, I don’t yell, and, on the best days, we eat NC BBQ.
I live with my wife and 3 rescue dogs on an acre within the Charlotte city limits that we bought (mostly) for the dogs. When not out shooting, you can usually find me working on personal projects, or exploring a new hobby, or fly fishing for anything that swims.
Some fun facts about me below – the rest you need to learn for yourself. So, let’s work together!
• I drink a LOT of iced tea and there will always be some on set
• I was a Paratrooper in the US Army and have over 75 jumps
• I have seen every episode of Law and Order (go head, challenge me!)
• I will travel almost anywhere, anytime to eat BBQ
• Every fish I catch is released alive to live another day
• I have counted over 25 species of birds at our yard feeders
• I hiked over 700 miles of the Appalachian Trail in one trip

In nearly two decades in the commercial photography industry, Natalia proves a skillful dedication to the entire photography production process. During college, she kept her nose in the books for her commercial photography degree while working for internationally known photographers from coast-to-coast including Pete Barrett and Jim Erickson.

As a freelance photographer since 2007, Natalia travels with the lens of a storyteller. In addition to corporate and agency commissions, her immersive photographs have captured the landscapes of Southeast Asia, her own extended family dinner table in Chile, and delicate portraiture of coconut farmers in Panama.

As a former professional salsa dancer, she occasionally dusts off her heels and hits the pista de baile.
Born and raised in the Midwest. I first became interested in the arts in high school. This is where I began my creative journey and first felt what it was like to create something entirely your own. I started my BFA with a focus on painting, though that quickly shifted into digital media. I have always been interested in and drawn to technology’s advances as well as their origins. I then started to explore sculpture and how different types of digital media could play a role in three-dimensional work. My work shifted into building my cameras while merging traditional and new photographic processes. Upon graduation, my passion for photography grew as I learned more about lighting and started to develop my photographic style.
Commercial Photographer and Cinematographer: Jamie Orillion, a husband, and father, shoots digital for work and film for passion. As a graphic artist, he was always in need of better images than what was being provided by his clients. Thinking “how hard can it be” he purchased his first digital camera and a lighting kit and started shooting. Through constant testing, trial and error, along with a strong determination, Jamie was naturally directed to moving from a graphic design studio to the photography business that you see today. Fueled by quality, Jamie constantly strives for the highest quality work in both personal and professional projects.
I'm fun and easygoing. I love being on a good set with great people. Let's be serious, but not take ourselves too seriously. Let's create!
Here's the deal:
Married my high school sweetheart;
I have 6 kids;
I love coffee;
Sushi is always a good option;
Old enough to know life before digital;
I once played rugby in college and had no idea what I was doing;
I can't remember if rugby was before or after a pink mohawk;
Relationships over resources;
Pictures are cool but people's stories are cooler;
I love what I do;
Specifics are important but I just want to shoot;
I've been proud to call Florida my home since 2007. It's a weird place and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I am an editorial, commercial and advertising photographer based in Tampa Bay although I often work in Miami, Orlando and elsewhere. I've been fortunate to be a part of a vibrant photo community here in Florida since graduating with a degree in Photojournalism from Western Kentucky University.
After working as a staff photographer for a Ft. Lauderdale based NGO traveling to Central America and the Caribbean, I made my home in Tampa with my wife, Megan, and our two daughters.
When I’m not living the dream, you can find me traveling, scuba or freediving, or some combination of those. I am a professional level member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP). My archive is represented by Redux Pictures. Feel free to also check out my portfolios at foundfolios, PDN's photoserve, and Wonderful Machine. I was also fortunate to be part of The Washington Post team that won the Public Service Pulitzer Prize in 2022.
My relationship with photography dates to elementary school when my family moved into a house with a darkroom. I spent most of my childhood there. In junior high I happed upon Cheryl Tiegs modeling for a shoot in Washington Square. I poached some frames. The pics scored me the job of photo editor of our high school newspaper. This was my big break because my then-classmate Jimmy Hirsch went on to be a staff writer for the New York Times. He somehow talked them into giving me an actual assignment. It went well and they gave me a couple more. It was official. I could legitimately say I shot for the New York Times. That was 1986.
A couple thousand assignments later, I have begrudgingly lived through the transition from film to digital. As a reprieve, I have adopted a forgotten photographic process, the photogravure, and am diving deeply into its preservation. My wife, Hilary, whose patience, maturity and wisdom netted us three now-grown children is so supportive of my photogravure obsession that even when she can’t sleep, she asks about it…

Matthew Rakola (né Hakola) is a proud Maine native who learned how to photograph people by bartending. Both professions require the ability to read people quickly, anticipate their needs, and most importantly–listen. To be fair, he also learned a thing or two as a commercial photography major at Syracuse University, where he spent hundreds of hours up to his elbows in smelly photo chemistry.
I guess It’s fair that he got most of his professional training while washing dishes.
Today he uses all of these skills and more as a commercial, advertising and editorial photographer based in Washington, DC. He specializes in photographing real people doing real things and still loves to listen and learn on the job.
When he's not writing about himself in the third person or making images, he's probably with wife, chasing their two sons around. He’s actively lobbying his family for a pet skunk, who he is going to name Kodak. In the meantime he dotes on his two goldfish, Becky and Swimmy.

Director of photography + photographer based in Chicago, Illinois. With more than a decade of experience creating branded content for websites, commercials, documentaries and brand films, I bring practical ideas to help projects thrive.
I specialize in creating hybrid video and photo assets for production companies, agencies and corporate clients. I have a passion for shooting in agricultural, construction and manufacturing environments. I take pride in my ability to work with nimble crews to create remarkable visuals.
I grew up on the south side of Chicago + some say I still carry the accent. Apparently when I order a "salad" or say I’m from "Chicago", I sound like a Super Fan. Nonetheless, I’m fond of my accent + I’m pleased to be connected to such an iconic city. Growing up in a working-class family built the fibers of what I am today. I’m still based in Chicago, conveniently located in the River North area.
When not traveling, I’m at home with my husband, daughter + our two dogs. I love all of them, equally. I find great comfort in cooking at home, but always enjoy a night out in heels. I love cleaning, it's my therapy. I donate my free time to the local animal shelter down the block with photography services + foster dogs in need. As hard as it is not to get attached, it brings me great joy to have assisted in a second chance. I have a shoe addiction + love a good sale. I can’t walk past a dog on the street without saying hello, which I have passed that love of dogs along to my daughter. Since my husband introduced me to Korean food, I love it and there's no turning back. We got married in Italy, but neither of us is Italian.
